    Thank you all for coming and staying to help the kids get a better experience with JAVA, a few of you said it was even rekindling your interest in JAVA, an unexpected outcome but really cool to hear :) More details at ...... https://www.facebook.com/epikprojectuk/posts/619817928070045

    Please also welcome Stefan Costen on facebook, he did a brilliant job on Satureday as our latest fully trained EPIK WebMaker mentor who is going to help us get the kids working even more towards coding through modding MineCraft!

    Nick and I had a chat this morning and we have decided to open the office once a month to do MineCraft, coding with JAVA, we were really impressed with both the kids and the parents who just got stuck in and contributed to making this, not only a learning experience for the kids but themselves too! Thank you all!
    Dorine and Nick

    Hi Dorine
    I have 1 possibly 3 more boys interested in coming plus Ryan again, Ryan has done a good selling job! Where can I find info on what to download onto laptops so I can get them sorted before we arrive, and one mother has asked what is the minimum requirement for a pc laptop. And have you got the mac setup info yet?

    Kind regards
    Nathalie

      Some people learn French just because they can, others do because they want to go to France to be understood ; ) and then there are all the other reasons in between - he needs to find his reason but we often need help to find what we looking for :)

      Exactly,I have found ,since home educating this magically happens and they choose their pursuits at the level that full fills their 'hunger'. I am hungry to code and I am sure its only a matter of time before they choose to. X

    We are again over subscribed on this event, awesome!! :) so we are going to add a 4th Exercise - Taming pets! Which many asked for a couple weeks ago, we are going to open up my room to progress to the taming Mod provided you understand how to create a block, adding a recipe, and create a new item type (They all build on each other)
